A native of Pueblo, Colorado, Dr. Roukema has since decided to make New Mexico his home. After attending the University of Northern Colorado, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in chemistry, he then completed his dental training at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. Following graduation, he moved to Albuquerque to receive an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Certificate from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. He has been a resident on the “Duke City” ever since.
Dr. Roukema has always had a commitment to forging trusting relationships with his patients, focusing on their overall oral health, as well as the value of prevention and regular maintenance. Recognizing that individual situations require different options, Dr. Roukema works with his patients to develop comprehensive treatment goals. He does this by providing a full range of dental services services in his Albuquerque office, ranging from simple cleanings and fillings, to complex reconstructive cases, dental implants, root canals, full and partial dentures, and extractions.
Dr. Roukema is a member of the American Dental Association, the New Mexico Dental Association, the Albuquerque District Dental Society, and the American Academy of General Dentistry. Wanting to always be a student of dentistry, he attends continuing education classes to stay current on the latest techniques in the dental field.
Dr. Roukema and his wife Christy are the proud parents of three children. In his off time, Dr. Roukema loves spending time with his family and enjoying the outdoors on either a bicycle or skis.
